Set against the lush backdrop of 1890s New Orleans, Marr’s spellbinding prequel to the Wicked Lovely urban fantasy series invites readers back into the world of the fae. Human jeweler Thelma “Tam” Foy hides the fact that she can see the invisible world of the fae to keep herself safe from retribution. But when Tam first encounters the Dark King Irial, the faery ruler frightens and intrigues her in equal measure—and the two fall for one another rather quickly. But unbeknownst to Tam, she is the key to ending a curse on the fae Summer King, placing her at the center of an age old conflict between the Summer and Winter Courts. Irial is determined to protect her from the other faery monarchs, but his former lover and would-be successor, Niall, is just as dead set on turning her over to the Summer King. The resulting conflict delivers all the magic, intrigue, and romance that Marr’s fans expect. Readers will be pleased. (Self-published)
